Question about 2002 Buick Rendezvous

1 Answer

Buick rendezvous rear window's drivers side defroster wire is disconnected. I don't know how to fix it. Even when I hold the wire to the connection point, it doesn't spark or defrost anything.

I was wondering if I super glue it or something else. When my family is in the car all the windows are fine but the rear window fogs up and we can't see through it. Any answer will help, thanks.

If the defroster isn't burned out, you need to resolder the wire to the defroster. Chance are when your just holding the wire to the connection you're not getting enough contact to operate it.

SOURCE: rear defrost on 97 buick lesabre not working

your problem is in the window..........if you are getting 12v to the wires that connect to the window the lines in the window must have a break in them ............. they must conduct the dc volts to complete the circut, the lines heat form the voltage running through them thus ridding your window of fog and ice
hope this helps...........thanks for choosing FIX YA!

Sounds like you may have a leak in the heater core and the fan is blowing anti-freeze (the sweet smell) through the vents.

Not a problem. I'm glad to help. As far as the vents, yes they run by vacuum. If the blend door or other door isn't opening or closing, you could draw cold air from one vent and warm in another.

Give it a try and let me know if you find anything. If you can't, I'll see if I can dig a vacuum diagram for the system ,may be you can find your problem

SOURCE: My buick rendezvous, the rear and back windows keep fogging up even with the heater on and rear heat on. I'm not a technical guy so I really need help with this. If people are inside, it fogs up, if t

That's not unusual if you have a lot of people in the car. I will fog up because the glass is colder then the warm moist air hitting it, so the water condenses on the glass. Two ways to solve this issue. First open the windows a small amount to get rid of the warm air and introduce some cold air. OR second, set your defroster from full hot to slightly on the cool side with air circulation from the outside as well (i.e blend air as opposed to only cabin air)..

I have this problem in my Buick Park Avenue. The two passenger side windows and the driver window work fine, but the rear driver side window won't close if it's opened. I disconnected the wire from inside the door to avoid further problems.

First try helping the window up, by gently pulling on it while you push the button. If this doesn't work and your vehicle is still under warranty, take it back to the place of purchase, the window motor will need to be serviced or replaced.

Back defrost don't work on 97 buick park avenue


Regarding the repair of the rear window defroster. There is a "electric ACD module" on the inside rear driver side roof sail that connects to the rear defroster and antenna. I had the same problem and found the connector for the defroster had overheated and melted resulting in a failed connection. The NAPA part numbers for the module and replacement connector are 25623688 and 15305949.

Rear window defroster wont work.


First place to check is under the wide trim piece that runs over the back drivers side door and also runs to the back window. You can pull this away from the body. It just snaps in place and the seatbelt goes through it. Pull it down toward you and you should see a black box fastened to the side of the window pillar. It should have three wire connections. One is the radio antenna, one goes to the window and one comes from the wire harness. Check the two wire connections from the harness and to the window. See if they are loose or in my case the one from the harness was burnt and had melted the black box where the wire went in. I had to replace the the wire connector and the black box ($72.00) and replaced the connector terminals. The replacement connector is available but that little thing is pricey ($32.00). They must be proud of that thing.
Hope this helped.
